Group of Ministers stressed to shun the hatred growing in the minds of people at GP level

Bhubaneswar:28/5/20: The meet of Group of Ministers (GoM) on Thursday stressed to shun the hatred growing in the minds of people at GP level against coronavirus patients. The high powered meet through video conferencing was presided over by Odisha Finance and Excise Minister Nirajan Pujari.

The meet emphasized that a concerted effort must be directed to take up awareness campaigns to educate people, especially in the rural regions of the state, that the coronavirus affected persons are not dangerous to society.

The minister said it has come to light that pregnant women and children are among those migrants who are mostly affected by the dreaded disease.

Pujari said efforts are being made to protect adolescents treated at temporary healthcare centres, the minister said and added that it is high time that work of the private hospitals which are allowed to test Covid-19 patients should be scrutinized.

He said the kits used for such tests must be checked from time to time to ensure their effectiveness. The minister said research should be done on Covid-19 so that the information could be used in future work related to the development of the vaccine.

The video conferencing was attended by minister for revenue and disaster management Sudam Marndi, women and child development minister Tukuni Sahu, additional chief secretary of health and family welfare Pradipta Kumar Mohapatra and other senior officials.
